Speak Up Congressional Briefing

Join us for our Congressional Briefing and the release of the Speak Up 2016 findings. We'll share what we learned from the 500,000+ students, parents and educators on the impact and potential of education technology use within our classrooms.

Receive new infographics and reports about the findings and hear directly from a panel of students and educators about how they use technology for learning in and out of school, and their aspirations for better usage to drive improved student outcomes. Learn about plans for Speak Up 2017, the 15th year of this important national initiative.
